London's Tech City A Second Base For Local Startups

image hosted on flickr

by Lumberjack

A number of companies from the Helsinki region have moved operations to London to take advantage of the networks and connections available around London's Tech City. Among them count Foodie.fm, who has built a presence in Tech City to help bring their grocery shopping solution to the UK market, as well as Kiosked, the platform that turns images, videos, and applications into interactive storefronts.

These Finnish companies are in good company. To see how many name-droppable companies are located in Tech City, here's a cool map charting everything out. Nordic Connection, a grassroots group of Nordic companies located in Tech City is also compiling their own map of companies with local roots, and you can get in touch with them here.

We spoke with Kiosked CEO Micke Paqvalén about his experience and reasoning for opening an office in London, where they currently boasts five employees. He explains the reasons for expanding to London were fairly straightforward. As Kiosked works in at the intersection of so many industries, such as international brands, advertisers, media, and e-commerce, London provides a hub of nearly every kind of industry.

Building a better future



R ENAISSANCE, a five-storey office development offering rents at a fraction of London rates, is nearing completion close to East Croydon Station.

Developers Abstract haven't been shy in advertising the prices for their new offices in Dingwall Road as starting from a market-beating £22 per sq ft.

But they haven't compromised on quality on the first speculative development of its type in Croydon for two decades, achieving the highest environmental standards and offering five flexible floorplates of approximately 20,000 sq ft each.

Mark Glatman, chief executive of Abstract, said: "The reasons for investing in Croydon are numerous, including the exceptional connectivity by public transport between Croydon and central London, the strong base of highly-respected occupiers, the skilled labour base and the funded public realm improvements by Croydon Council.

Met Police to get new HQ on Victoria Embankment



The Metropolitan Police is selling its New Scotland Yard headquarters and moving to Victoria Embankment.

A competition has now been launched in association with the Royal Institute of British Architects to design the new headquarters on the site of the former Whitehall police station by the River Thames.

The move is part of a major move by the Met to update its estate and reinvest the savings in frontline policing.

Police chiefs estimate £50m would be needed to revamp the existing new Scotland Yard site.

The new Whitehall site – known as The Curtis Green building – has been empty for two years.

The competition with RIBA will invite architects from around the world to produce a design which will help transform the building into a modern, well equipped and efficient new police headquarters.

The Met also plans to exit around 300,000 square metres (one third) of its estate over the next three years.

This will save £85m per year on running costs by 2015/16 and £60m will be reinvested in the estate and infrastructure to support the frontline and help keep officer numbers high.

The plan will also provide up to 950 modern cells to help reduce the time it takes to process people in custody and the sale of up to 200 buildings – the vast majority of which have no public access.

Deputy Mayor for Policing and Crime, Stephen Greenhalgh said: “Selling off underutilised and unoccupied buildings will cut the running costs of the Met’s estate by £60 million, which will pay for 1200 extra police officers across London’s boroughs over the next three years.

‘This strategy should generate at least £300 million, which will be ploughed back into the remaining buildings so that a run down, largely Victorian police estate is fit for the 21st century.”

Further details about how to register for the Curtis Green Building design competition are available here

The deadline for receipt of expressions of interest is 2pm on Thursday 27 June 2013

Indeed, there is no need to post construction pics showing the main skycrapers currently u/c every day. Please only post 'real' news and construction pics once per two weeks for example, just to show the progress, (if there is any ofc). Thanks.

Digital Shoreditch 2013: London's Tech City is the UK's "economy of tomorrow"

As the question of the UK's EU membership has taken the center stage of British politics, some of the UK's leading business heavyweights argue that political interests should not be placed before the economics.

Some of the UK’s leading business heavyweights including Sir Richard Branson and Sir Martin Sorrell as well as the current and next presidents of the Confederation of British Industry and the chairmen of BT, Deloitte, Lloyds and Centrica argue that exiting the EU could cost the British economy up to £92bn (almost $140 billion) a year, The Independent newspaper reports.

I'm not sure this news is really relevant to this thread. It has something to do with london, but its not really about the projects and construction in london.

Building projects set to transform London

Major developments across the city are rejuvenating historic landmarks – and creating new ones



London is going through a makeover as dramatic as any in its history.
Like the city’s dramatically shifting demography – the 2011 census showed that white Britons are in a minority for the first time – the UK capital is going through a seismic change in its appearance.

Prices in super-prime areas, fuelled by the influx of global buyers, range from £3,200 to £3,800 per sq ft. The cost of homes in London overall has increased by 10 per cent in the past two years while high-end homes have risen by nearly a quarter.

The centre is being ringed by monumental new developments, either rejuvenating historic London landmarks or bringing new (and expensive) life to run-down areas. From Battersea Power Station in the south to the King’s Cross regeneration zone in the north, the fringes of zone 1 and the banks of the river Thames, London is being transformed by the world’s leading architects from Renzo Piano to Terry Farrell.

SO143 - Myself and I'm sure many hear really appreciate your hard work to keep this thread active and busy, thank you.

Would it be ok if you could not post old construction images like you just did (you don't normally do this), after all London has the busiest construction forum on SSC and we don't want to give our friends any thing to negative this fact.

Thanks again for your great work S0143, it's much appreciated by many
